Hacking the System: Examining Unite America’s Plan
April 11, 2018 @ 12:00 am
Unite America aims to strategically elect independent candidates to office who can break through the political gridlock and serve as a voice for all those in the center –– not as a traditional third party, but as America’s first “Unparty.” Their “fulcrum strategy” focuses on electing a sufficient number of candidates to closely divided legislatures where, as a swing coalition, independents can deny both parties an outright majority and use their disproportionate influence to forge common-ground solutions. Jonas is joined by Nick Troiano, who has spent the last decade leading political reform campaigns and is on staff at the Centrist Project. Most recently, Nick helped launch Change.org’s new elections platform as the company’s senior politics manager.
